Porto Conte Ricerche is a research centre of the Science and Technology Park of Sardinia.

The technological laboratories at Porto Conte Ricerche enable the integrated application of methodologies and experimental pipelines with a focus on industrial research, and are devoted to the development of knowledge, processes, products and services with applications in biotechnology (biomedicine, agroindustry, environment) and in food technology (quality, safety and sustainability in food distribution, consumers’ health, trademarks and labels).

Since 2009, Porto Conte Ricerche has been actively involved in research projects aimed to the development of methods and pipelines for the characterization of microbial proteomes and microbial community proteomes, and in their application for biomarker discovery in human medicine, in veterinary  medicine, and in the agrifood sector. A specific research focus has been the investigation of the gut microbiota and of its relationships with the host genetic makeup (and of its connections with gut health and the predisposition to develop autoimmune diseases) as well as with environmental factors (including nutrition). The research activities have covered different aspects of microbial proteomics, from optimization of protein extraction methods, to analysis of tryptic peptides by high resolution mass spectrometry, to the development of dedicated bioinformatic pipelines for data analysis and interpretation.
